For effective steam management, desuperheaters are a vital tool. Steam is superheated for a lot of purposes, including generation of mechanical power.
But when steam is used for heating, heat transfer or other such industrial processes, it needs to be saturated. Steam saturation means lowering the temperature of the steam and making it cooler.
This is the purpose of a desuperheater. This is a device that lowers the temperature of superheated steam by injecting a certain amount of water into the steam flow.
The process of temperature reduction of steam is called attemperation. The basic purpose of a desuperheater is providing heat transfer between steam and water.
The more efficient a desuperheater is, the easier it is to avoid expensive problems such as a long time taken to start up and shut down, dwindling efficiency, and wearing out of piping and equipment.
In industrial processes, desuperheaters play a significant role, as important as mixers. That’s why companies like Komax manufacture desuperheaters along with mixers and heat exchangers.
Why choose Komax?
Komax Systems Inc has been producing and supplying desuperheaters around the world for various industries since 1973. This makes Komax one of the earliest companies to be in business.
The reason why Komax is a world leader in desuperheaters is because they believe in simple technology. Much like static mixers, the technology behind a desuperheater is also simple. Komax desuperheaters don’t require a long pipe downstream or a mixing elbow before the temperature change.
This has been achieved because Komax desuperheaters inject the water spray upstream with the help of Komax’s patented ‘Equalizer’ mixing module.
This has been found to be the best solution in reducing the temperature of superheated steam and recovering the necessary heat. The difference in Komax systems is made by steam and water mixing system, and this is also what gives Komax an edge over other companies.
Komax Sustems Inc also manufactures steam heaters, starch cookers, and heat exchangers for industries like petrochemicals, waste water treatment, biofuel, agriculture, food and beverage, etc.
Various companies rely on Komax for the best in mixing and heat transfer technologies. Komax desuperheaters are custom built to fit each area of application.
